Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

Areas of counselling I deal with
Our reactions to events and people are formed from a complex interaction of actions, thoughts, feelings, beliefs and bodily responses. Most of what we do, we do out of habit, without noticing how we are doing it. Understanding where our behaviour comes from is only half the battle, noticing how we do it, in detail, is the key to transformation. If your goal is to manage yourself better and to live a more satisfying life then exploring the detail of how you live your life now will give you new tools in order to choose how you live your life in the future.
Each partner in a relationship brings their own preferred way of relating, their own preferred way of managing crises, their own background issues and blind spots. Add two or three ingredients from each partner and the resulting cocktail can be exciting, demanding, exhausting or just plain hard work. Getting the best out of relationships requires skills that many of us have never learned. How to be clear about what we would like, how to negotiate, how to express anger and disappointment constructively. These skills can be learned and practiced.
Whether you work together, parent together, live together or just need to explore your relationship, couples counselling can provide a space for you each to hear the other and be heard, a space where actions and reactions can be slowed down and explored, a space where each partner can learn new ways of managing their own issues and responses leading to clearer and more satisfying communication.
